Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

March 04, 2013

These, have zero vegetables in them.  But, they have some whole wheat. That makes them good for you, right?

These minis have been our cinnamon roll go-to recipe for a while now.  But, these are my first attempt at homemade-from scratch cinnamon rolls. OK, technically, second. The first batch of these was a bit too"wheat-y" for my taste. So, for the second batch, 1/2 of the wheat flour was sub for regular, all purpose, white flour.  Much better and softer texture.

A very yummy treat for breakfast, but, sorry..no veggies. :)
